Courses Details


Why do investors need structured products? The course begins with an answer to this question, before getting into a classification of structured products based on their functionality, such as capital protection, yield enhancement, participation and leverage. The constructions of some capital protected and yield enhancement products are discussed in explicit details. In addition, variations of these examples are introduced to illustrate how structured products can serve investors with different risk-reward preferences and market views. The final two sections are devoted to accumulators and constant proportion portfolio insurance (CPPI) products that have grown in popularity in recent times.
